Orangeburg, N.Y.: Radiancy Inc. announced the international launch of Mistral, a light-based, multi-applications platform device for hair removal, skin photo rejuvenation, acne clearance and psoriasis care at Medica Dusseldorf and CosmoProf Asia, 2006.

Mistral, using proprietary Light Heat Energy™ (LHE) technology, is one of today's fastest and safest light-based devices available. "LHE is a fascinating technology," said Dr. Dolev Rafaeli PhD, CEO of Radiancy, "By incorporating advances like OP2 and a computer-based upgradeable smart system, we take that technology to the next level."

Mistral introduces OP2 (Optimized Pulse Protocol™) .OP2 creates a protected environment for the safe delivery of energy. Within milliseconds, a train of pulses, optimized to application, skin type and treatment parameters, are emitted. There is a slight pause between pulses, allowing skin to cool while the targeted chromophores retain and accumulate energy. This produces optimal results while the integrity of the skin remains protected.

Mistral's handpieces, with significantly extended lamp life, have large 12 cm² spot sizes and snap-on adaptors to treat smaller areas. And when the optional Extra-Large spot size of 18 cm² for hair removal combines with a 2-4 second pulse rate, Mistral becomes the fastest mode of treatment in the industry.

Recognizing that not all skin types are alike, there are 2 handpieces available for specialized treatment of skin types V-VI (Fitzpatrick scale). "For some skin types, photo therapy can be harmful," commented Dr. Paul Sofer MD, head of Radiancy's clinical department. "The Sensitive Care handpieces for skin photo rejuvenation and hair removal allow greater flexibility in choosing energy levels and enable the professional to create a safe and effective treatment solution."

Mistral integrates a custom-programmed Windows CE-based platform to streamline operation and maintenance. Multilingual capabilities, preprogrammed protocols and intuitive user interface simplify operation and facilitate altering between applications and treatment options. Mistral, with internet capabilities, is easily upgraded, insuring it remains compatible with all future advancements, such as the onboard patient database already under development.

Radiancy Inc. develops and manufactures safe and effective laser and LHE phototherapy devices for Skin-Resurfacing, Hair-Removal, Acne-Clearance, Skin-Rejuvenation, Tattoo and Pigmented Lesion Removal and Psoriasis Care. Radiancy is committed to providing smaller, smarter and cost-effective devices for the aesthetic skin care and the At-Home market.
